Comparing ArrayList elements with Hash map Keys

I have a arraylist and hash map .
I want wen ever there is matching in arraylst elemtns and hashmap keys

The values of HashMap is list.
My given codeis failing somewhere between.
Please check..
import java.text.DecimalFormat;
import java.util.ArrayList;
import java.util.Arrays;
import java.util.HashMap;
import java.util.HashSet;
import java.util.Iterator;
import java.util.List;
import java.util.Map;
import java.util.Set;
 
 
public class test5
{
	public ArrayList<String> getData(HashMap<String, ArrayList<String>> AMap,ArrayList<String> temp)
	{
		
		System.out.println(" Invloking getData ");
		Set<String> tempSet = new HashSet<String>(temp);
        System.out.println("getData "+tempSet);
        Set commonKeys = new HashSet(AMap.keySet());
        ArrayList<String> ruleGroupIds = new ArrayList<String>(commonKeys);
        commonKeys.retainAll( tempSet );
 	    System.out.println(commonKeys);
	 	for (Object key : commonKeys) 
	     {
		      ArrayList<String>  value = (ArrayList<String>) AMap.get(key);
	 	      ruleGroupIds.addAll(value);
  	     }
	 	System.out.println("result " + ruleGroupIds);
 	    return ruleGroupIds;
	}
	public static void main(String args[])
	{
		ArrayList<String> compareList = new ArrayList<String>();
		compareList.add("A");	compareList.add("B");	compareList.add("D");
		ArrayList<String> superList = new ArrayList<String>();
		ArrayList<String> ruleGroupIds = new ArrayList<String>();
		ArrayList<String> ruleGroupIdsss = new ArrayList<String>();
		ruleGroupIdsss.add("1234");ruleGroupIdsss.add("12345");
		superList.add("A");superList.add("B");superList.add("C");superList.add("E");//superList.add("D");
 
		HashMap<String, ArrayList<String>> hm = new HashMap<String, ArrayList<String>>();
		hm.put("B",ruleGroupIdsss);hm.put("D",ruleGroupIdsss);hm.put("A",ruleGroupIdsss);hm.put("E",ruleGroupIdsss);
		hm.put("C",ruleGroupIdsss);
		
		test5 t = new test5();
		t.getData(hm, compareList);
	}
